What appears to be a quiz or poll about Mainspring, in Czech — Wherein I learn my name in that language is spelled 'Jaye Lakea", and Mainspring is Srdce světa.

Zeppelins ahoy!x-planes with a very cool (and slightly trippy) 1945 Goodyear ad.

Belle of Bohemia: 1900 — Some classic architecture from Shorpy. They sure don't build 'em like that any more.

Diamond Oceans on the Outer Planets? — This is so cool I nearly had a nerdgasm.

Exactly. I think Bierce sums it up well:

by: Ambrose Bierce

"OURS is a Christian army"; so he said
A regiment of bangomen who led.
"And ours a Christian navy," added he
Who sailed a thunder-junk upon the sea.
Better they know than men unwarlike do
What is an army, and a navy too.
Pray God there may be sent them by-and-by
The knowledge what a Christian is, and why.
For somewhat lamely the conception runs
Of a brass-buttoned Jesus firing guns."
